obama and i both care about poor and middle-class fami families. the difference is my policies will make things better for them. we shouldn't measure compassion by how many people are on welfare. we should measure compassion by how many people are able to get off welfare and get a good-paying job. >> worth noting, that's his first candidate-to-camera ad. this morning the obama campaign have another ad out hitting on the 47% comment. this is what it looks like. >> when mitt romney dismissed 47% of americans for not pulling their weight, he attacked millions of hard-working people making $25,000, $35,000 a year $40,000 a year. romney paid just 14% last year on over $13 million in income. >> this is the second ad earring in seven states. note, he launched his first attack in ohio and it's not an accident. for months the obama campaign has been hammering romney there on his personal wealth, and those hits appear to be working. a new poll working. the quinnipiac poll showing a ten-point gap. yesterday, showing romney down 8. ohio has been a problem for romney since the primaries when of all t

're both in ohio today, yesterday obama and romney rivalled the muppets and triedo take manhattan. they jammed as much as they could during competingisits to the big apple, a whirlwind day mediaappearans. as tis them either physically in new york or on the tv. >> i'm just supposed to be eye candy here for you guys. >> the two traded few actual bas. instead they did more subtle keheid end the serious issue education and even less serious topics like who could best suck up to the former president, bill clinton. their sharpest and most substantive change was on iran. united nations, the president appeared to draw a real line in the sand on anff t bu a nuclear weapon. >> so let me be clear. america wants to resolve this issue through diplomacy, and we believe this is sll time and space to do so. but that time is not limited. make no mistake. a nuclear iran is a challenge that can be containe ut the president's strong words weren't enough to satisfied romney. >> we can look at the record of the last four years. is iran closer to a nuclear weapon or not? we know the answer. it's closer

for romney. strategists for both parties in florida agree obama is ahead in the state and the battle over met care is helping make inroads with seniors. as nancy reported, the president is doing better with blue collar white voters in ohio and doing better on the economy of the economy. it's whaepg is mitt romney is having to play defense with his own voting group. the time he has to spend shoring them up is time he's not spending getting swing voters. >> pelley: john, polls that are taken about this point in september sometimes predict the winner and sometimes they don't. in 2008, we had obama over mccain at about this point, but in the year 2000, we had gore over bush about this point. how predict i.v. are these polls six weeks out. >> reporter: if we go all the way back to 1952, eisenhower's first election, the vast majority of the time the candidates who was ahead of the polls ended up winning in the end. presidents john kennedy, ronald reagan, and george w. bush were all tied or behind, scott, and they pulled it out in the end. >> pelley: as in politics, things can change pretty quickly

the outcome of their football team? this is unbelievable their reversal on this. president obama tweeted today. nfl fans on both sides of the aisle hope the refs lock out is settled soon. i have to be fair about this. it would have been nice to see that tweet about the chicago public school teachers. the story is about more than just a blown call. it's about labor. this is an issue that strikes at the very core of what we do with workers in this country. the broad republican philosophy is to do what? eliminate the unions to get cheap workers, go right to the bottom line. this is what the nfl is doing right now. they are getting what they paid for. even after last night's blown call, the nfl is holding firm against the refs. the main sticking point is job security. nfl owners want to be able to fire these refs whenever they want to. the same thing is playing out where? with the chicago public school teachers. if you're not good, we're going to get rid of you. we don't need football. in the scheme of things, as far as other workers are concerned who are far more important, it's pretty important

, with the topic itself or the time. and the question to both of you is, president obama was criticized for his huge until that comment. over how much credit we deserve in america. that's what we want to discuss for the next eight or nine minutes. you cannot, i want to give each one minute and i encourage you to share ideas and talk about it. ms. laura ann mclane kuster, wel start with you. >> well, i absolutely believe that it is the private sector to create jobs. i have been in the private sector for the last 25 years and since the last campaign, i have created my own business that we have found strategy for nonprofit fundraising. but i believe that the government does create an environment for businesses to grow. that is what tax policy is all about. the tax breaks that congressman charlie bass has voted for her, it was encouraging the production of fossil fuels and energy. i believe that what we need to do is give incentives, such as growing the economy here at home and the incentive for shipping jobs overseas. i think we need to end the uncertainty and it flows from the deficit. we have to

for minority voters. >> it seems like it's not totally insane. >> if it goes up in 28 and obama goes up to 81 or 82, both in the possibility, the number becomes vanishingly smaller. it's like 37%. i think for a lot of people that's going to be a big adjustment, like what it means to be in the country. obama is the first winner no one had ever done that before. his issue for democrats because a wedding only 40% of ways, but the idea is kind of a moment, a wake-up call for the country living in a different place than many of us grew up, especially the baby boomers which is an overwhelming the white generation. >> i can't remember the national journal talked about the majority of the democratic caucus in 2013 will be either women or minorities. and so, if obama wins for such a small share of the white vote and you have the majority caucus it enforces how different the democratic party would be in the long run and in the short run that will cause a lot of anxiety and stress among certain groups of white voters. >> let me ask you one more question from the audience, but i can't resist since you ar

the states are following them. it wasn't just hispanics. it was socially liberal white women and obama today, 56 of 58%. >> i will just say abortion is a height tension issue on both sides of the debate. important to keep in mind. >> things like planned parenthood. planned parenthood which every republican presidential nominee in bourse -- endorsed. i agree. abortion is what it is. you do have this divide, but i think other elements came in in a way that had not previously and all this is allowing obama told his vote among those women. >> you don't actually have soft dollar donations going to the party. you have democrats as republicans did in the 70's him of posting the first wave of regulation have to rely more on upper-middle-class donors. that shapes the issue about the campaign. >> immigration is not an issue that is the core base republican conservative issue. there is a sizable but minority group within the party who cares very deeply about it. why has it become a position of the party now when, in fact a mother is such a huge and growing voter block from it is an important issue. >>
